Our 2022 Hawk-IDDRC Pilot Grant Award Winners
Six new research projects have been announced, drawing upon $120,000 from the first annual Hawk-IDDRC Pilot Grant program. The projects range from behavioral psychology and preemie babies, to the study of tRNA viruses in the brain, and will each receive a $20,000 award for their research.
The winning researchers are:
Aislinn Williams, MD, PhD
Aislinn's project will seek to show how tRNA viruses may rescue premature stop codons in the brain.
Stefan Strack, PhD
